About the Book

Patrick J. O’Hara is a preeminent finance minister who knows it is risky to associate with anyone in the IRA. But when an acquaintance warns Patrick he is in trouble, the minister leaves his office to meet him on a dark street, setting himself up to be attacked, mugged, and left as a goner. Now as he is accused of running guns into the North to stop the slaughter of Irish Catholics, only time will tell if his political career is over. In a runic collection of short stories, Kieron Pinard-Byrne relies on a variety of characters to turn the Celtic wheel of life on Irish men and women in the one hundred years after the 1916 Proclamation of Irish Independence. Within diverse tales intertwined with Celtic mysteries, blarney, and ancient wisdom, Pinard-Byrne explores human travails and tribulations surrounding Eros, Thanatos, spinsterhood, suicide, rape, castration, IRA peace, invasion, lapsarianism, revivalism, and the Holy Grail. Celtic Irish Arousals shares tales of the human spirit that reveal lingering Celtic perceptions in the mindsets of the Irish at home and abroad.
